For best results, apply the apricot once a day for a month. If the stretch marks do not lighten, try using an egg-white mask. Egg whites contain a high amount of protein; and, they help to tighten skin pores and give the skin a radiant glow. Separate the egg white from the egg yolk. The yolk is not used. Beat the egg white until it is thoroughly whipped. Clean the area affected by stretch marks before applying the whipped egg white. Apply thin layers of egg white, and leave it until it is dry. Wash off the egg white with warm water. Do this regularly, and observe any changes.

Rapid Home Remedies recommends using aloe vera, because it contains collagen, which repairs human skin. Try to use fresh aloe gel from the leaves of an aloe vera plant, rather than using a store bought gel. This requires the removal of any thorns and the outer-layer of the plant.

Drink plenty of water while trying out stretch mark remedies. These remedies are more effective when the skin is hydrated and supple. Drinking water restores elasticity of the skin and detoxifies the body.
